DO NOT BECOME A MEMBER OF PLENTY OF FISHNovember 16, 2010
OK, yes, it's ""free of charge"". But, in my opinion, after being on this dating site for approximately 18 months, it was a total waste of my time. I sincerely believe I had a very good profile, good photos, etc. Too many women (and men) are just going by the photos...and you really just don't KNOW IF those photos are current or real. And you can't TRUST what's written in those PROFILES either...people can write anything. I think this is a format where people can be WHO they WANT to be and often NOT WHO they REALLY are! And why is it that we men always get stuck with the cost of EVERY date? If there's a GREAT match, don't both the man & the woman stand to gain?! I once posted a photo of myself wearing cut-offs, it was not in anyway indescent...but, the editor of the site removed that photo 3 times, then e-mailed me and warned me not to post it again. If you're a male and you've been on PLENTY OF FISH, you probably have seen plenty of women's PROFILES with photos of them wearing nothing but a bra & panties...to me, that's not appropriate...the site has a DOUBLE STANDARD. Also, you should KNOW...I'm pretty sure about this, that NOW, the site is owned by MATCH.COM...and it's my personal opinion that MATCH.COM sells e-mail addresses and makes a TON of $$$$$$ by doing so...they have millions of subscribers on both MATCH.COM and PLENTY OF FISH all over the World. I also happend to believe that women need to understand that most likely, over 50% of the men on PLENTY OF FISH are ""MARRIED""...not single or divorced...a word to the wise. The only real WINNERS on PLENTY OF FISH are the Owners...though it's free to the members, the Owners are making millions of dollars off of advertisers! I'd be surprised if more than 2% of the members ever find true love on this site.
